The Verve: Wyoming trip sparks interest, then art became therapy

The very moment you enter Jared Anderson’s apartment just west of downtown Spokane, you know you’ve stepped into the world of an artist; a certain scent lingers in the air, an easel stands in front of a window, canvases and supplies rest everywhere and a still life is staged on a table behind a hand-built grid. Here the University High School graduate studies both live models who sit on a velvet chair or lounge on a couch, and inanimate objects that he carefully selects. Living or not, what he paints always contains life.

The Verve: Mobley’s upbringing in Wyoming shaped her love of nature

DeRoulet strives to capture ‘aesthetic arrest’ on canvas

While a female subject sits comfortably in a chair, John deRoulet stands at an easel and studies her. He holds up a viewfinder and peers through it before marking the canvas. As he works with quick and steady brush strokes, he occasionally pauses to squint at the model and hold up a pencil horizontally and then vertically, memorizing the distance of one facial feature to another.

The Verve: Miranda anything but walled in by his art

The sound is unmistakable: metal balls rattling in a can as it’s shaken followed by the hiss as color is released. Recently, the sound could be heard coming from Glamarita, 911 ½ W. Garland Ave., where artist Trevor Miranda was getting busy on an interior wall. One hand held a sketch, the other released magic from a can, representing the artist’s take on the business’s focal points with universal imagery of handmade fashion. The style is street-inspired and demonstrates Miranda’s passion for coloring the world and leaving his mark.

The Verve: Quilts weave memories, art

We all have a favorite T-shirt, a lucky one or one that contains good memories of a place or a time. When the much loved T-shirts wear out or no longer fit, they go to the bottom of the drawer where they remain; memories are hard to throw out. Mixed media fiber artist Pam Hansen understands, and so she began a business of taking the memories of others and stitching them together into T-shirt quilts. Now, she puts her own memories together with textile art.

Tessa Groshoff finds safety in art

On a white sheet of paper, Tessa Groshoff spills her secrets. She swirls, lines and scribbles to tell her stories in the universal language of art that words simply cannot convey.

The Verve: Catherine Freshley preserves beauty of landscapes through her work

Artist Catherine Freshley could easily be called a historian; years from now, people will look at her work and see, through her eyes, the simple beauty of the past. “I can’t not respond to the beauty of the landscapes I see. Most of the time, my presence in any given place is so finite, even fleeting, since I often paint from photos I take while driving, that I want to hold on to it somehow,” she said. “I feel somehow connected. So I paint it.”
